[Warning – unabashed political rant ahead]
I’ve been rather quiet on the subject of our idiot governor and his refusal to apply for stimulus funds. Now that the matter is settled, I wish that my former classmate would just shut up and slink away until his term is up. This has been a case of the worst type of political grandstanding at the expense of the citizens of our state.
Whether or not you agree with the concept of stimulus funds in general is moot. The funds had been allocated. If Sanford had not applied for them the funds would have been redistributed to other states. Yet, the people of South Carolina would still have had to pay for the stimulus funds through our taxes. It would be a case of us paying taxes but receiving no benefits, and solely because of a grandstanding idiot.
